Where to get your sushi, nigiri, sashimi and ramen noodles in Auld Reekie
Edinburgh's Japanese scene has grown considerably and now there's no shortage of good spots for rich ramen noodle broths, colourful bento boxes and quality katsu curries. The sushi scene is thriving, with both kawaii and classy options for a quick takeaway box or more indulgent platters for a special night out.
An elegant, calming spot, and still some of the best Japanese food to be found in Edinburgh.
Maki & Ramen
Any of this mini-chains' three branches are a good bet, but omakase at the pint-sized Nicolson Street branch gets a double thumbs up.
This new, intimate space offers beautifully cooked and presented Japanese dishes, from Wagu beef for dinner to a bargain set menu for lunch.
